KIANA

She/Her  /   Sagittarius 
Co-Founder

I first found yoga on my search for mobility to help my chronic muscle pain. I quickly found That yoga would not only improve how my body was feeling but it was beginning to heal my mind, and my heart. In a fast paced, sometimes stressful world it’s not often we take the time to choose ourselves. Yoga has allowed me to truly embrace my own body and honor it. Once you choose YOU Yoga will be your guide to finding inner peace, calming anxiety, dismissing thoughts that do not serve you, and embracing where you are at the current moment, while paving your way to your best life and happiest self. 

 

Yoga has changed my life in so many wonderful ways, it is now my life long goal to serve others and show them the way. I dedicate my time to teach, share, and learn with each of my students, and help them find the road to inner peace, growth, and belonging.  For me, yoga is about the balance between strength and flexibility, exertion, and releasing. So, my classes combine both strength and mobility work in a dynamic, Vinyasa Flow style. Expect to move, sweat, and breathe. I often offer meditations after my classes as well to bring you grounding and clarity. I hope to have the honor of sharing this journey with you.

Yoga has knocked on my door throughout the busiest times in life. At first as an exercise class that taught me to move stress out of my physiology. And later encouraged me to explore and question why I found myself in so many stressful situations to begin with.

 

Then I was hooked, traveled to India and immersed myself in a daily practice to build consistency. There I learned from the Hatha Yoga tradition as well as meditation, mantra and breathwork. You’ll find my classes to be a bit technical, slow, and strengthening for the mind and soul. Trust in your process, surrender to your breath and connect with your body.

KAYLANI

She/her  /   

Kaylani fell in love with yoga the first moment she stepped on the mat in February 2019. To enhance her knowledge and gain more insight on her practice she earned her 200 hour yoga teaching certification in September 2021. Since October 2021, she has been teaching primarily vinyasa classes and has enjoyed the ability to creatively guide students through mindful movement. Aside from yoga, Kaylani enjoys strength training, so mind to body connection is an essential component to her practice. She incorporates a balance of building flexibility and strength within her classes by slowing down the movements to allow the students to identify what their bodies are feeling in each pose. Kaylani is a registered nurse so focusing on safety and individuality is key when teaching her students. When she isn’t working or teaching, Kaylani enjoys spending time with her husband and dog, Ozzy. She loves scary movies, cooking vegan meals, paddle boarding, and traveling to new places.

JOSE

He/Him  /   

I took my first yoga class 10 years ago at a gym and I fell in love but I never practiced again until last year. I been telling myself for years that I need to do it again. For me, yoga was an outlet while I battled depression, anxiety and panic attacks. Once I began to be in tuned with my body and my mind I was able to find peace and tranquility after my first hot yoga class in January 2022. I’m a very dedicated and passionate person and with that, I practiced non stop for months. One of my instructors planted the seed to become an instructor. As a bodybuilder I quickly realized how incredibly important it was to practice. Weight training is very Yang and yoga is very Yin and both pair up beautifully. Shortly after, one of my many instructors recommended a school she went to in Mexico. 4 months later, I went off to do my 3 week 200HR immersive Yoga Teacher Training in Mexico. I finally found my calling and teaching fitness and yoga was what I was meant to do. I enjoy all types of yoga especially Yin and Power Vinyasa and my style is power/core driven. My quest is to create incredible and powerful individuals who are connected to their body and mind through overcoming physical and mental challenges in class. I want every one my yogis feeling proud and confident after their practice.

She/her  /  Cancer

My first experiences with yoga were with my grandma at the YMCA as a kid which is one of the reasons yoga has such a special place in my heart. Then in high school a studio opened up right next door to where I went to school and I began going almost everyday. For me going to a yoga class was a space I could go to unwind and share space and energy with people who also loved yoga.

 

A few years later I decided I wanted to deepen my practice so I signed up for the 200hr ytt at Wildwood. I found so much grace and acceptance for myself through my teacher training. Now I find myself here with the honor to share space with you beautiful humans. My goal is to create a safe space for you to show up exactly as you are, and find grace for yourself!

At first yoga was just a nice workout to do every once in a while. It wasn’t until after I graduated high school that I started to take it more seriously. By applying myself more I began to not only connect more with my body but also my mind and spirit. I became more in tune with myself and my whole perspective on life changed in a beautiful way. My goal in my practice is to help others grow and heal their mental and physical health, while feeling empowered and having fun!

She traveled to Isla Mujeres, Mexico with Kootenay Yoga School to complete her 200-Hour teacher training and left knowing that she was not going back to corporate life. She believes that yoga should be accessible to all bodies, and strives to lead classes that allow all to find a place of self compassion, self love and joy through mindful movement.

ADAM

He/Him  /   Libra

My name is Adam Carbary and I have been on a path of self discovery for most of my life. First discovering yoga, breathwork and meditation in 2009 I have been diving deeper into these practices, and subsequently myself, ever since. I have traveled all over the world learning different modalities from various teachers to allow for my continued healing process and transformation.

 

At the beginning of 2022, I became a certified Somatic Breathwork Practitioner. I believe I have finally found the modality that has not only allowed me to transform my own life, but allowed me to help others do the same. Let me help you connect with your breath and the uniquely beautiful person you are meant to be. I look forward to having the opportunity to hold space for you.
